CMC is Currently Reservation Only.
The Children's Museum of Cleveland (CMC) offers a variety of discounts and programs to make the Museum more accessible to all families. CMC regularly seeks program support to provide more opportunities for families to visit the Museum. As a non-profit organization, CMC must fundraise through grants and donations to support the programs and discounts that we offer. All of the active programs and discounts that we offer are listed below. This page will be updated as any new opportunities arise.
At this time, CMC does not offer discount programs for schools, educators, child care centers, youth groups, scout troops, camps, foster care, health care employees, athletic or religious groups.
